The central hospital, built in 1910, was in sore need of expansion. But with local transit routes maxed out, a new option was needed.

Balboa Terrace park was nearly unchanged since it was built in 1923.
An upgrade in 2006 changed little, other than paving the paths. A new rugby field was added, however.
Just for fun, lets compare Balboa City in 1930....
